Casper Dual Immersion

Governor Meads mentions DLI in his State of the State address!

Check out the video here……We are approximately at minute  44.35 – 47.50

The condensed text is as follows….

Discussions between the DOE, the Legislature and my office should focus on issues such as high school graduation rates, dual language immersion opportunities, charter schools, career-technical education, or how to minimize the potential for school violence…

We are not setting the stage for the best education system possible for our children.  We’ve got the funding. We’ve got the buildings. We’ve got the great teachers. Now we need to increase high school graduation rates, improve college readiness, and have a long-term path to excellence in education. We owe it to our kids and to our state. There needs to be a clear message to people, to administrators, to everyone that Wyoming will not accept the status quo, that Wyoming will have a predictable, accountable, long-term path to educational excellence. Our state’s future depends on it because today’s students are tomorrow’s citizens, workers and leaders…

We want our papers’ headlines to speak of results, of innovation in education….it is up to us to do the work to get the headlines that we seek.  That Wyoming is progressing towards excellence in education.  This is the session to get us back on track.
